Bot Commands


At Giveth, we love to acknowledge the value that each member brings to the community and provide recognition for the awesomeness that they contribute. The praise given is tracked by PraiseBot and used to calculate rewards for active contributors.

You can praise a fellow community member in any channel by typing /praise followed by "@" and their username. Don't forget to mention why you're praising them.

For example: /praise @WhyldWanderer for creating such an amazing Discord Guide 😛

Once you have typed your praise, you will know that the bot has tracked it because a ✅ emoji will appear as a reaction to your message.

When you receive praise, you will be notified by the bot in your direct messages with a link to the message where you were praised.

Simple Poll Bot

This bot can be used to create a straw poll such as this one:

To create the poll shown above, you would simply type the command as follows: /poll "What is the best poll bot?" "Simple Poll" "R2D2"

By following this template, you can create as many answers to the question you would like and community members can answer by reacting with the corresponding emoji. /poll "Question" "Answer #1" "Answer#2" "Answer #3" ..etc.

Chip Bot

Chip bot can be invited to any of the voice channels on the server. Once you have invited the bot into the channel, anyone can type commands in the #chip-playlist text channel to start playing or queuing songs. Here is a list of the available commands:

ch!p 'link or search query' - Loads your input and adds it to the queue; If there is no playing track, then it will start playing
ch!queue - Displays the current song queue
ch!skip - Skips to the next song

Chip bot can play music from a multitude of sources including Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud, etc. In order to have Chip bot play from Spotify just click on Share > Copy Playlist Link > copy this into your chat with the ch!p tag and you’re all set.
